The Umvoti Agricultural Society (UAS) committee was very excited to celebrate the Umvoti Agricultural Society turning 160 years old this year. What an achievement and honour to be part of the history of this society, and most importantly, the amazing spirit that has continued through the years in this community.

Mr G. Hull, the current UAS, feels the society has indeed stood the test of time and is proud that it is still functioning as a worthwhile organisation within the community.
The function of the UAS is now more relevant than ever, as it provides members within the agricultural community a formal forum to discuss and attend to the many challenges facing agriculture today.

A large part of the function of the UAS is being the liaison between Kwanalu and its members at local level. A substantial portion of the member’s subscription fees go to Kwanalu, as its plays an incredible role in our province in ensuring that agriculture in KZN is able to function well into the future. Further to this is Kwanalu’s membership with AgriSa, which in turn allows us to interact on national level on issues of importance.
The formal UAS AGM was held in June with the 160th celebration being a separate event held for the UAS members and their families. This took place on Saturday 17 October at the Beehive.
Gary and Carola Redinger kindly provided the UAS with the perfect venue for lots of fun. The afternoon and evening involved outdoor country games for the children, followed by rugby on the big screen and a country-style dinner, complete with apple pie for pudding. The evening ended off with some entertaining line dancing in the “saloon”. The event was well supported and was an afternoon and evening of wholesome country fun.
